This article was first published in my column at Magic City Morning Star on October 5th 2015
I have just read at Women's Weekly, what at first glance was a very good article titled Who are the real victims of domestic violence? Unfortunately, when one gets passed the rhetoric and looks at the 'meat' of the article, one finds that it is yet another example of pandering to the feminist anti-male agenda.
The article was excellent at providing certain statistics about where Domestic Violence occurs and even relates those statistics involving Aboriginal Domestic Violence. It also hints at alcohol being a prominent factor in such offences. It demonstrates that Domestic Violence is not related to wealth. It does however make the dubious point (since words create images that may be false)* that Domestic Violence is a personal choice.
I have published numerous articles on the issue over the last six months, with the latest being published on October 3rd. That article was titled: Guilt, Deceit and Hypocrisy behind Domestic Violence Campaigns in which I stated that "..choosing not to point the finger is quite a different matter than expressly trying to silence the dissemination of information about such abuse."
The Women's Weekly article (no author attribution) however failed to address a number of issues that I have raised over the last six months.
What are the statistics for female violence against other people including males? What are the statistics for Male-on-male Domestic Violence? What are the statistics for Domestic Violence within homosexual relationships? What are the statistics for Domestic Violence within relationships in which the male is involved in violent crimes and gangs? What percentage of offenders are found in ethnic groups within which honor killings are part of the ethnic culture? What percentage of male offenders are the victims of mental cruelty and emotional abuse by their female partners? What percentage of Male perpetrators of Domestic Violence suffer from Mental Illness?
Those last two points, Nos 6 and 7 are intimately connected. The feminist mantra appears to be that males CHOOSE to be violent and undoubtedly to some (presently unknown) extent, it is absolutely true. But I would like to draw your attention to a known fact about males in Australia that for some reason is never seen to be connected to Domestic Violence - the Male Youth Suicide Rate.
The suicide rate for young males in Australia is four times that for females. Why is this so? And why is this significant?
Unless one wants to assert that all troubled young males commit suicide, then we must conclude that many of our troubled youth do not succumb to suicide but continue on with their lives. How many I wonder do so while still deeply emotionally disturbed? And I further wonder how many of them have been subjected to mental cruelty and emotional abuse - the weapons of choice used by female abusers.
In my October 3rd article I made a point of offering a perspective on one of the claims of the feminist movement.
I sometimes wonder if the reason the Women's Movement is failing to halt sexism in society (their claim not mine!)* is precisely because too many young males see this hypocrisy so clearly, and become so disgusted, that they loath both the feminist hypocrisy and the women who espouse the feminist agenda.
I furthermore stated:
It is time for the feminist movement to 'walk into the light' and speak factually - statistically - and honestly about the causes of domestic violence; the ratio of offenders according to gender and sexual orientation; the part that mental cruelty and emotional abuse play in triggering domestic violence, and it is time for them to stop being hypocrites when it comes to domestic violence in ethnic communities.
That many young males suffer from emotional problems that lead them to suicide is obvious, and it is also obvious that in every article supporting the Women's Movement, women (and gays) are given a free pass. The free pass takes two forms. Firstly no statistics are provided about female violence and secondly, the bottom line is always the same - Men are violent and deliberately choose violence as a path to power.
What the Women's Movement does not do, is tackle the issue of 'Violence' in our society. They are not interested in violence in society, and in fact as my Oct 3rd article points out, they are not even interested in violence against women. What they are actually interested in is their own sociopathic agenda. There are several possible agendas running from hatred toward all males (See the Bettina Arndt Reference HERE) to earning a living from their self-perpetuating movement.
I applaud legitimate research into and action resulting in an effective strategy to combat violence in our communities. What I do not support is the hypocritical way in which the feminist agenda manipulates the issue. Our societies are becoming very anti-male sexist (reverse sexism - which PC defenders maintain is not real). Why is it OK to share email jokes with males about women beating and killing their husbands, when for a male to send the same joke with the gender roles reverse, it becomes a PC offense?
The feminist agenda - although it never implicitly says so - is designed to disparage all men, and I suspect they do so for the sake of power. Reaction Formation(to put it too simply) is an illness in which people go on the offensive accusing people (rightly or wrongly) of certain offenses when in fact it is they who within their hearts and minds harbor the desire to commit such offenses.
The Australian Prime Minister recently commented about a 15 year old Muslim terrorist in Australia and said "...we must not vilify or blame the entire Muslim community with the actions of what is, in truth, a very, very small percentage of violent extremist individuals."
The same holds true when it comes to Men and Domestic Violence!
Strauss et al. found that female intimate partners in heterosexual relationships were more likely than males to use psychological aggression, including threats to hit or throw an object. A study of young adults by Giordano et al. found that females in intimate heterosexual relationships were more likely than males to threaten to use a knife or gun against their partner (See: Children's Deaths Don't Matter to Domestic Violence Activists)
I close this article by repeating what I wrote in my Oct 3rd article:
It's time our societies stopped playing the PC game; dispensed with inaction that arises because of PC guilt trips; stopped playing with statistics in order to advance certain causes and stopped deceiving society at large. If we have a real problem, then it requires real action to solve - not PC game playing.
I’m sure if you understand what Sociology is that you would find my statement rather strange for it leads to the question of what impact the King’s Calendar Research Result has on society and societal problems. But before we go look at that aspect, I want to talk about the personal aspect – MY aspect.
The demolition came as row between the church and government escalated over allegations the church refused to pay a £450 arbitrary road usage fee. Pastor Zhang Di was summoned for questioning last month and accused of assaulting police officers and attacking a village official. So when I read reports as in the link you sent and see the ACTUAL TRUTH in the middle of the article, I know that there is a lot more going on than is being reported.
Well obviously I am misrepresenting the meaning of the protester here. What they mean is that they support the right of one section of society to have and to hold their own culture and beliefs and they do this by protesting against another section of society’s right to have and to hold their own culture and beliefs.
As for a non-Muslim who posits that Islamic Terrorists do not truly practice Islam or truly believe in Allah, they are speaking either from complete ignorance, or subjective rationale relative to whatever it is that they have been told, or heard, or read. The word subjective relates a personal position relative to a particular situation. That does not of course mean that the subjective perception is ABSOLUTELY / ULTIMATELY incorrect. It may well be correct – the ultimately provable fact of the matter.
And so I began using the LIKE button. Ah such freedom! New sunrise photo – LIKE! Second day of school award for my granddaughter – LIKE! My 98 year old grandmother passed away yesterday – LIKE! But then the weirdest thing happened. Someone posted an article about two homosexuals who were given a public flogging in Indonesia. So I hit LIKE! Bloody hell! 23 threats of physical violence upon my person, and 17 announcements that I was about to be defriended. WTF?
So there you have it. The Patriarch Joseph was born in 1683BC. He was set over the Kingdom of Egypt in 1656BC. The Israelite Sojourn in Egypt commenced in 1648BC. Joseph died in 1582BC. The Hyksos were expelled in 1554BC. Moses was born in 1523BC.The Exodus commenced in 1449BC. The Israelites entered Caanan in 1412BC and 480 years later in the 4th year of Solomon the first temple commenced construction in 970 BC.

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
